Overview of the EBFM Implementation Plans from NOAA Fisheries Headquarters and the regions
 
49:14
June 13, 2018 Speaker: Karen Abrams, Supervisory Fishery Management Specialist Abstract: Ecosystem-based Fisheries Management (EBFM) is a systematic approach to fisheries management in a geographically specified area that contributes to the resilience and sustainability of the ecosystem; recognizes the physical, biological, economic, and social interactions among the affected fishery-related components of the ecosystem, including humans; and seeks to optimize benefits among a diverse set of societal goals. NOAA Fisheries finalized an Ecosystem-based Fisheries Management (EBFM) Policy and Road Map in 2016, which established a framework of six Guiding Principles to enhance the implementation of EBFM. The Road Map provides options for implementing each of the Guiding Principles as short, mid and long-term actions and calls for the development of regional Implementation Plans. Karen will provide an overview and an update of the Implementations Plans. Each of the plans identify priority EBFM actions and engagement strategies to be addressed by the regions and headquarters offices. About the Speaker: Karen Abrams is a Branch Chief for Sustainable Stocks and Ecosystems in NOAA Fisheries’ Office of Sustainable Fisheries. She works on domestic fishery policy and management issues related to fishery disasters, bycatch, stock sustainability and ecosystem-based fisheries management. Karen has also worked on a variety of fisheries habitat programs including as National Coordinator for the Essential Fish Habitat Program. Prior to joining NOAA Fisheries, Karen was Assistant Regional Director for Coastal Programs at the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation working on wetland and coastal habitat conservation and an Environmental Management fellow at the Environmental Protection Agency’s Chesapeake Bay Program. She received her M.E.M from Duke University and her B.A. from the University of Virginia.

Todd Davison (NOAA) Receives ASFPM Meritorious Lifetime Achievement Award
 
05:09
Normally ASFPM announces its award winners at the Thursday Awards Luncheon. But since one of our awardees wasn't going to be around for that, we surprised him after he spoke at our third plenary Wednesday (May 3, 2017). This award recognizes individuals who, throughout their career, have achieved success in a significant aspect of floodplain management. These efforts shall include, but not be limited to, policy, outreach, implementation, education, government, research, litigation or other actions that demonstrate the advancement of flood loss and risk reduction within the nominee's professional realm. Todd Davison, director of southern region NOAA for coastal management, was named this year's Meritorious Lifetime Achievement Award winner. Beginning with his graduate training at LSU in coastal geology, followed by time on Capitol Hill, and continuing for 30 years of federal service with FEMA and NOAA, Davison uses his knowledge of the environment and public policy to assist communities in mitigating current and future impacts from flooding disasters. Collectively his career contributions truly have carried forward the goals and objectives of floodplain management across the nation. Awarded a FEMA Congressional Fellowship in 1989, he spent a year in the office of the ranking member of the House Banking Committee drafting legislation that ultimately became the National Flood Insurance Reform Act of 1994. This Act made critical financial reforms, established the first Technical Mapping Advisory Council, created a Task Force on the Natural and Beneficial Functions of Floodplains, expanded the Community Rating System and required a comprehensive nationwide evaluation of riverine and coastal erosion hazards. Davison helped shape this critical legislation that continues to influence national flood policy. In the early days of his career with FEMA, Davison trained hundreds of staff and response professionals in natural hazards management. He gained extensive experience with tropical storm response starting with Hurricane Iniki in Hawaii in 1992 and working up to being Federal Coordinating Officer or Deputy for Hurricanes Fran, Bertha, Bonnie, Floyd, Opal, Marylyn, and the four Florida hurricanes of 2004. This work culminated with his serving as Mitigation Director for Hurricane Katrina in Mississippi, responsible for over $1 billion in mitigation grants and extensive post-storm flood and surge mapping. His experiences have given him a unique understanding of the connections between hazard mitigation, land use planning and coastal climate adaptation and resilience. When Davison retires in 2017, the work he has promoted throughout his career will continue thanks to the capacity he has built directly with staff he supervised, and indirectly with the thousands of colleagues and customers he has connected with over his career. His time in public service has left enduring benefits and a legacy that will be carried on by many coastal community resilience practitioners inspired by his work.
The Sea Also Rises: Prepare for a Changing Shoreline | Eric Morris | TEDxCharleston
 
09:38
If you’re on the fence about whether or not the sea rising is real, you better find a taller fence, at least if you plan on watching Eric Morris’s absolutely riveting talk about sea level rise. (You’re going to need that fence’s elevation). Filled with convincing data and unique visualization techniques based on Morris’s work using lidar imagery, this talk is one you’ll want to share. With a love for maps, Eric Morris is trained as a geoscientist who works as a Remote Sensing Specialist with NOAA's Office for Coastal Management (OCM), where he uses lidar and aerial imaging in developing geospatial and land cover products and managing NOAA’s Digital Coast outreach efforts. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

NASA, FEMA, NOAA Wrong: Hurricane To Hit New Orleans, Jose To Hit New York. To Irma Hit Tampa
 
02:32
NASA, FEMA & NOAA Say After Florida Irma will make its way to Miami & Hurricane Jose Will Not Hit US. It's Wrong. According To our model it's not Miami but New Orleans bound not Miami This is Irma on September 8. It's indeed looks it's going to Miami but it's wrong, it will be sucked into the gulf of Mexico. And after hitting Florida Keys West It's New Orleans bound According to Kryan Channel model Irma will not go to Miami but make a landfall between New Orleans and Gulfport following the vacuum Mexican hurricane Katya created And if our model is correct than following hurricane Jose will hit between Carolina & New York but not go to the North Atlantic Ocean as NOAA forecasts

Coastal Hazards: Coastal Storms and Erosion: Managing for an Uncertain Future
 
16:06
Coastal hazards are a widespread challenge that cost millions (and sometimes billions) of dollars in the U.S. every year due to property loss and spending on mitigation measures. Based on the most recent U.S. Census, over 39% of the U.S. population lives in areas that may undergo significant coastal flooding during a 100-year flood event. Additionally, six of the ten most expensive weather-related disasters in U.S. history have been caused by coastal storms. Reducing risk and responding to coastal hazards is an ongoing challenge that relies on close coordination and cooperation between geoscientists, coastal planners, emergency managers, and communities at all levels. This is the first presentation in the Critical Issues webinar, "Planning for Coastal Storm and Erosion Hazards". This webinar features an introductory talk and three case studies from around the U.S. will cover coastal storm and erosion hazards in the U.S., as well as examples of coastal hazard planning from the Pacific, Gulf, and Atlantic coasts, with a focus on how geoscience informs planning at all levels. Speakers from California, Texas, and Georgia will discuss the impacts of coastal storms and erosion, tools used for coastal hazard mitigation planning in their regions, and examples of community engagement and coordination. Our speakers include: Maria Honeycutt, Coastal Hazards Specialist, NOAA Office for Coastal Management Patrick Barnard, Research Geologist, USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center Jeff Taebel, FAICP, Houston-Galveston Area Council Jennifer Kline, Coastal Management Program, Georgia Department of Natural Resources This webinar is co-sponsored by: American Institute of Professional Geologists; American Meteorological Society; Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists; Consortium for Ocean Leadership; Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society; Federal Emergency Management Agency; Geological Society of America; Geo-Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers; International Association of Emergency Managers; National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; U.S. Geological Survey.

Beach SAMP May 03, 2016
 
01:52:12
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) projects that sea level in Newport, R.I., could rise up to 7 feet over 1990 levels by 2100. This could mean that within the lifetime of people born today, Rhode Island’s ocean water may rise enough to swallow local waterfronts as we know them now. Natural hazards, such as Superstorm Sandy, have also inflicted significant damage to residences and infrastructure along the state’s coast. To address challenges from a changing shoreline, the R.I. Shoreline Change Special Area Management Plan (Beach SAMP) is focused on improving understanding of how fast erosion is occurring and what areas and infrastructure are at risk of flooding during storms or from future sea level rise. This plan will improve state policies to better address the impacts of shoreline change.

The creators of Sailing Mischief lost their sailboat in a marina when it was hit by the eye of a major hurricane. Then they scrambled to escape an increasingly desperate situation on the island of St. Martin. Linus Wilson interviews Ariana Czaia of the Sailing Mischief who with her boyfriend Christian Hightower lost their boat in the eye of hurricane Irma in September 2017. It was sunk by Irma in the marina. They then evacuated to Puerto Rico and found themselves in the eye of Hurricane Maria. Then Christian was stranded by hurricane Maria. Parts of this interview were aired on episode 51 of the Slow Boat Sailing Podcast and its patron-only bonus episode. We also have public domain footage from NOAA of the track of 2018 major, category 4 hurricane Florence as it nears the Carolinas, North and South Carolina. Sailing La Vagabonde recently spoke of their hurricane plan to stay in the hurricane belt for the height of hurricane season in "Why we Chose to Sail during Hurricane Season!

Hurricane Lane & Solar Storm Alley: Solar Storm Shortie 08-23-2018
 
05:00
Hawaii Emergency Management declared that emergency communications during Hurricane Lane will be conducted through amateur radio, which could spell trouble with the coming solar storm this week. The Sun has woken up from its slumber and has fired a solar storm our way. It should hit Earth on August 25, but an even earlier solar storm headed just south of Earth might mean we could see solar storm effects even earlier. Though this solar storm is expected to bring only mild effects, aurora is possible at high latitudes. GPS reception should remain good at low latitudes and near the hurricane affected areas, but will likely be glitchy at high latitudes, near aurora and near the dawn-dusk terminators. Learn the details of the coming storm, see how emergency communications and search and rescue will be affected, and find out what else our Sun has in store this week.

Catamaran found by Florence Hurricane Hunter Air Force Plane, Sailing Across the Atlantic
 
04:23
Hurricane Hunter aircraft flying through the eye of category 4 hurricane Florence, found the 41-foot sailing catamaran crossing the North Atlantic dodging three named cyclonic storms. The 2019 Bali 4.1 luxury catamaran named Vaughanderlust with a crew of a French captain and American mate were bound for the Dream Yacht Charter boat base in Marsh Harbor, Abacos, Bahamas after departing Portugal on August 18, 2018. Slow Boat Sailing corresponded with Sean Connett who identified himself to Slow Boat Sailing as working for the Coast Guard’s Miami Rescue Coordination Center and PA1 Michael De Nyse responding on the U.S. Coast Guard Southeast. We also spoke to the Dream Yacht Charter's base to confirm the safe arrival of the catamaran crew at 9 AM on September 14, 2018, in Marsh Harbor, Abacos, Bahamas. A press release from the U.S. Air Force said: “Hurricane Hunters locate lost vessel, assist U.S. Coast Guard The Air Force Reserve’s 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron assisted the U.S. Coast Guard with locating a 41-foot Bali sailing catamaran during a search and rescue mission Sept. 11, 2018. They assisted with the SAR mission after completing their mission for Hurricane Florence. (U.S. Air Force photo/Master Sgt.

JPSS Concept of Operations: Constellation Management
 
05:57
NOAA and NASA partnered to implement the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS). The JPSS Program constitutes the next series of U.S. civilian polar orbiting environmental remote sensing satellites and sensors that have been flown historically on polar satellites. These satellites will implement NOAA’s requirements for collection of global multi-spectral radiometry and other specialized meteorological and oceanographic data, via remote sensing of land, sea, and the atmosphere. These data will support NOAA’s mission for continuous observations of the Earth’s environment necessary to understand and predict changes in weather, climate, oceans and coasts, which support the Nation’s economy, and protect lives and property. The JPSS constellation of satellites starts with JPSS-1 (now designated NOAA-20) sharing the polar orbit occupied by the currently primary operating Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) satellite. JPSS constellation management consists of planning each mission such that a newly launched satellite (i.e. NOAA-20) is phased to reach an initial parking orbit for raising to its required operational orbit altitude in a half-orbit position relative to the existing (i.e. S-NPP) satellite. A planned sequence of orbit-raising maneuvers are executed to achieve this constellation configuration. When the satellite orbit raising and commissioning nominally completes the new satellite assumes a primary designation and S-NPP, in this case, assumes a secondary satellite designation. When the next JPSS satellite is to be launched (i.e. JPPS-2 ~2021) plans are to maneuver the secondary satellite beforehand to a different position so the next satellite can be phased and raised into a half-orbit separation from the current primary satellite. The resulting three-satellite constellation maintains primary and secondary operating satellites ~ 50 minutes apart and the now tertiary satellite approximately a quarter-orbit separation between the other two – all generating remote sensing data of the earth.

Science to Support EBFM of Coral Reef Ecosystems Across the U.S. Pacific Islands
 
51:21
April 11, 2018 Speaker: Rust Brainard, Pacific Island Fisheries Science Center Abstract: To provide the scientific underpinnings supporting implementation of ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM), the Coral Reef Ecosystem Program of NOAA’s Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center conducts interdisciplinary monitoring and applied research of coral reef ecosystems across greater than 40 U.S. Pacific islands and atolls. Since 2000, we have collected integrated observations to investigate spatial patterns, temporal trends, trophic, biogeochemical, and climate processes, and human interactions influencing the coral reef ecosystems and fisheries to better inform fisheries management and conservation. Integrated ecosystem observations include: benthic habitat mapping, ecological surveys of the diversity, abundance, size, and distribution of reef fishes, corals, other invertebrates, algae, and microbial communities, and physical and chemical oceanographic measurements local reefs to archipelagic scales. Along with fisheries-dependent and socio-economic data, multivariate analyses of these interdisciplinary data streams and on-going development of end-to-end ecosystem models are used to inform archipelagic fisheries ecosystem plans by NOAA, the Western Pacific Regional Fisheries Management Council and State, Territorial, and NGO partners. Specifically, we will discuss how the ecosystem observations and models are being used to generate annual catch limits, ecosystem components, stock and integrated ecosystem assessments, essential fish and critical habitat designations, listing and recovery decisions, and development of climate and ecosystem considerations and indicators. About the Speaker: Dr. Rusty Brainard has served NOAA for the past 36 years, including his present role leading the Habitat and Living Marine Resources Program of the Ecosystem Sciences Division at NOAA’s Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center. Dr. Brainard completed a BS in Marine Science from Texas A&M (1981), and MS in Oceanography (1986) and PhD in Physical Oceanography (1994) from the Naval Postgraduate School. In 2000, he founded the PIFSC Coral Reef Ecosystem Program, an interdisciplinary, ecosystem-based research program that conducts integrated ecosystem observations, long-term monitoring and assessment, and applied research of coral reefs to support ecosystem-based management and conservation. His team monitors the distribution, abundance, diversity, and condition of fish, corals, other invertebrates, algae, and microbes in the context of their diverse benthic habitats, human pressures, and changing ocean conditions.

Coastal Hazards: Life on the Edge: Coastal Hazard Mitigation at the Regional Scale
 
13:16
Coastal hazards are a widespread challenge that cost millions (and sometimes billions) of dollars in the U.S. every year due to property loss and spending on mitigation measures. Based on the most recent U.S. Census, over 39% of the U.S. population lives in areas that may undergo significant coastal flooding during a 100-year flood event. Additionally, six of the ten most expensive weather-related disasters in U.S. history have been caused by coastal storms. Reducing risk and responding to coastal hazards is an ongoing challenge that relies on close coordination and cooperation between geoscientists, coastal planners, emergency managers, and communities at all levels. This is the third presentation in the Critical Issues webinar, "Planning for Coastal Storm and Erosion Hazards". This webinar features an introductory talk and three case studies from around the U.S. will cover coastal storm and erosion hazards in the U.S., as well as examples of coastal hazard planning from the Pacific, Gulf, and Atlantic coasts, with a focus on how geoscience informs planning at all levels. Speakers from California, Texas, and Georgia will discuss the impacts of coastal storms and erosion, tools used for coastal hazard mitigation planning in their regions, and examples of community engagement and coordination. Our speakers include: Maria Honeycutt, Coastal Hazards Specialist, NOAA Office for Coastal Management Patrick Barnard, Research Geologist, USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center Jeff Taebel, FAICP, Houston-Galveston Area Council Jennifer Kline, Coastal Management Program, Georgia Department of Natural Resources This webinar is co-sponsored by: American Institute of Professional Geologists; American Meteorological Society; Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists; Consortium for Ocean Leadership; Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society; Federal Emergency Management Agency; Geological Society of America; Geo-Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers; International Association of Emergency Managers; National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; U.S. Geological Survey.
